6:00 PMBouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience

Resilience is the ability to face and handle life’s challenges, whether everyday disappointments or extraordinary disasters. While resilience is innate in the brain, over time we learn unhelpful patterns, which then become fixed in our neural circuitry. But science is now revealing that what previously seemed hardwired can be rewired, and Bouncing Back shows us how.

With powerful, time-tested exercises, author and psycho-therapist Linda Graham will guide us in rebuilding our core well-being and disaster-proofing our brains. A book-signing session will follow. Copies of her book, which won the 2013 Books for a Better Life award and the 2014 Better Books for a Better World award, will be sold at the discount price of $15 by check or cash.

Admission is free.
